Platform Specific Issues and Troubleshooting

Have an issue related to a specific source platform? Check out the individual pages for each source SnowConvert platform:

Issues Severity

In this section, you could find an explanation of the severities.

Low

Warnings for source code that there was no direct conversion to Snowflake. The code has been converted to a functionally equivalent output but should still be reviewed.

Medium

Errors that produce a functional or runtime difference. The user may have to invest a low amount of manual effort to complete the conversion.

High

Errors that produce a functional or runtime difference. The user may have to invest a high amount of manual effort to complete the conversion.

Critical

Parsing errors or errors that cause significant conversion exceptions in SnowConvert. If the source code is correct, a significant intervention will be required.
